Rainier Multiple Use Trail

 At first glance, this trail may appear to be just sidewalks but just south of the downtown area it becomes a "real" trail leading away from roads through the woods. It follows the former railroad corridor through the historic Issaquah downtown area and encompasses some of the City’s many historic buildings and recreational opportunities, including the Issaquah Visitor Information Center, the Issaquah Depot, Art-in-the Park, Senior Center, and the Issaquah Community Center. The trail is paved from Gilman Blvd. to 2nd Street, then becomes a dirt trail that leads around behind Issaquah High School and comes out on a dirt road. After a short time the trail continues as a dirt/ gravel trail up to the trailhead off Sunset Way, where all but the most seasoned mountain biker will likely want to walk the bike down a short but steep slope.
